This cult horror hit from 1985 loosely adapts the grisly otherworldly fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, throwing plenty of winking humor into the mix. The wonderfully crazy Jeffrey Combs stars as a nerdy med-school student who helps invent a syrum capable of re-animating the dead. Lots of gory, Evil Dead-style splatstick ensues. A perfect example of how much fun scary movies can be. 86 minutes Unrated.
